If there were a wrong way to scrap I'd definitely be in the "wrong way" camp.
I don't scrap chronologically.
I go for months without scrapping a single photo.
I often pick my paper first.
I sometimes build an entire layout with no clue as to what photo it will showcase.
I use flowers and butterflies for boys.
I mix patterns and manufacturers.
I'll spend hours on a layout and then completely redo it or trash it if I don't like it.
I don't have an imaginary deadline looming over my head screaming at me to
GET THOSE PICTURES INTO BOOKS.
Because that's not what scrapping is to me.
I just like to make pretty stuff.
This page was absolutely scrapped backwards,
and I love it.
It started with the butterfly, an idea I got from my friend Chris . . .
Then the rolled flowers.
Which I thought looked smashing with some Prima North Country.
Hmmm, Christmas paper. Maybe I can find a Christmas photo?
Oh wow, I'm going to need a fabulous title to go with that adorable picture.
"Let him sleep for when he wakes he will move mountains."
I often hide my journaling. I made a tag with Spellbinders Labels 8.
An eyelet and some Doodle Twine and it can easily be pulled out to read.
Last but not least, Washi tape . . .
A little bit of that stuff goes a long way as far as adding drama (or ooomph!).
I love it. And I need MORE.
I hope you enjoyed my little tour.
I'm curious if there are other scrappers out there a little bit like me -
who do things with pretty much no rhyme or reason?
